3 Advantages of Angel Arabic Bread Improver


Arabic bread (pronounced "Khubz" in Arabic), also known as pita or pitta, is a family of yeast-leavened round flatbreads baked from wheat flour, common in the Mediterranean, Middle East, and neighboring areas. It accounts for 50-60% of local bread consumption among people living. Normally, they are fresh and delicious for only about one day after baking. The next day the Arabic bread will become hard and have a poor mouthfeel.

Angel Arabic Bread Improver, newly developed by Angel Yeast, can help your Arabic bread rise in diameter, stay softer, and extend the shelf life to 3 or 4days.

Better dough extensibility and bigger volume

When preparing the bread dough, adding 0.5% of Angel Arabic Bread Improver will make your dough softer, reduce shrinkage after molding, and the diameter of the end product will increase by up to 5%.


Improve bread softness

To reflect the effect of Angel Arabic bread improver on improving the bread softness, we make toast according to the recipe of Arabic bread, and use a 1 kg weight to test the shape changes between the control group of toast and the toast adding Angel Arabic bread improver. We can see that the bread adding Angel bread improver was pressed deeper by the weight than that of the control group. According to the force curve, it indicates that the toast adding Angel bread improver is softer and has bigger shape changes than the control group.
